BCGold Corp. Commences Diamond Drill Program on Sickle-Sofia Property, Toodoggone District-Northern B.C.

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 26, 2007) - BCGold Corp. (TSX VENTURE:BCG) ("BCGold" or "the Company") is pleased to announce that diamond drilling has commenced on the Company's Sickle-Sofia Property situated 40 kilometres north of the South Kemess Mine in the Toodoggone River region of north-central British Columbia.

This past month BCGold completed 36 line-kilometres of induced polarization (I.P.) geophysical survey to close off a 2.5 kilometre long chargeability high delineated by a previous survey. This chargeability high, referred to as the Sofia target is flanked by peripheral copper and gold soil geochemical anomalies and is believed to represent a concealed "South Kemess-style" porphyry copper-gold mineralizing system (Figure 1). A six-hole, 1,500 metre diamond drill program is now underway to test the Sofia target and the Alexandra Zone, an associated high-sulphidation gold epithermal target.

Drilling is being performed by Atlas Drilling Ltd. of Kamloops B.C. Dr. Ken Dawson, PhD, P.Geo. is the Qualified Person for the purposes of National Instrument 43-101 and has reviewed the technical content of this news release.

The Sickle-Sofia Property

The Sickle-Sofia Property is situated in the Toodoggone District, a mineral exploration district renowned for a number of intrusion-related, high-grade, low-sulphidation epithermal gold and silver deposits and former producers (Shasta, Baker, Lawyers), high-sulphidation gold and silver deposits (Albert's Hump-Ranch property), and copper-gold porphyry mines and deposits (Kemess South Mine, Kemess North, Pine). In addition to the Sofia porphyry copper-gold target, a total of 8 mineralized epithermal gold showings and corresponding gold-in-rock and soil anomalies have been identified on the Sickle-Sofia property. Only 1 gold target (Quartz Lake) has been drill tested to date.

The Sickle-Sofia property consists of 25 contiguous mineral claims covering 9,077 hectares. Exploration work is being conducted out of Stealth Mineral's Base Camp at the junction of the Finlay and Firesteel Rivers. The camp is accessible by way of the all-weather Omineca Resource Road, 410 kilometres north of Windy Point, B.C. to the Kemess Mine turn-off and then approximately 22 kilometres northwest on summer access road.

The Sickle-Sofia property has received over $1.5 million in exploration expenditures to date by previous operators. Prior exploration work consisted of geological mapping, prospecting, property-wide grid-based rock and soil geochemistry, multi-array airborne geophysics, ground magnetic and IP surveys, and 3,323 metres of diamond drilling in 24 holes on the low-sulphidation, epithermal Quartz Lake vein system.

Toodoggone Properties Ownership Agreement

BCGold has an option to earn a 51% interest in the Sickle-Sofia, Fogmess and Louis properties from Stealth Minerals Limited by spending $1 million on each property over a three year period and a 60% interest by spending $2 million on each property over a four year period. BCGold's interest in any of the three properties can be increased to 75% by producing a bankable feasibility study. In addition, BCGold issued 150,000 common shares and 75,000 common share purchase warrants to Stealth for each property. BCGold also subscribed for an aggregate of 2,500,000 common shares of Stealth at a price of $0.20 per share.
